CAPE CANAVERAL (October 2, 2020) – KENNEDY SPACE CENTER – Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex will host its annual Salute to Brevard from October 12 – 18. During that time, Brevard resident ticket pricing will be $19 for adults and $14 for children ages 3 – 11 (plus tax).*
During the week-long celebration, the visitor complex shows appreciation for Brevard County residents by offering a 67 percent discount on admission for up to six people. Guests are encouraged to bring canned goods and non-perishable food items, baby formula and food, and hygiene products, which will be donated to Brevard County Sharing Centers.
“Salute to Brevard is our favorite time of the year here at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex,” said Therrin Protze, chief operating officer of the visitor complex. “We get to invite our neighbors in to explore space and collect supplies for Brevard County Sharing Centers at the same time. It’s the best of both worlds – sharing the visitor complex with our neighbors, and then sharing with the community. As we continue to navigate the global pandemic, we are especially grateful to our neighbors bringing supplies to help those struggling.”
“We are very thankful for the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex for hosting Salute to Brevard again this year,” said David Brubaker, president/CEO of the Central Brevard Sharing Center. “The basic need items collected during this event are critical to our agencies, especially during this time. Thanks to all the Brevard residents who continue to support us through their kindness & generosity. The need for these donations are at an all-time high, so the timing for this event is perfect.”
Proof of Brevard County residency in the form of a driver’s license or utility bill is required to receive the special visitor complex admission rate. Tickets must be purchased at the visitor complex on the date of entry, and only the purchaser needs to be a Brevard County resident.
Admission includes a full day of fun, inspiration and educational activities, including Heroes & Legends, featuring the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame®, presented by Boeing, Space Shuttle Atlantis®, Shuttle Launch Experience®, space films, Journey To Mars: Explorers Wanted, Rocket Garden, and many other exhibits.
As always, the health and safety of employees and guests is the highest priority for Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
